Am I in Seattle?

Hello there everyone, I hope you haven't missed me, but honestly nothing too exciting has been going on that I felt like I needed to ding in and bore you with my details! Ha.

Let's see, I last left you on Thursday, it was a busy day at work. Well, Friday was another busy day at work and Saturday was even busier. By 4pm on Saturday I was running out of steam, but I only had to make it another hour. I did and it was worth it. I was so happy that I got to work this was great fun (and money too!)

Last night I went to eat dinner with Aimee at a new place (I LOVE trying out new places). It's called "My Florist" and it's at 7th Avenue and McDowell. If you haven't been there, I would highly recommend it. All of their food is natural too and fresh. They don't even have an oven in the kitchen. It was super tasty and healthy! I enjoyed every morsel.

Today I tried to get up early, but that didn't happen. My cousin Mistie had offered to come over and give me a therapeutic massage today and I took her up on it. Boy was I glad I did! That was probably the best thing that has happened to me lately. It was amazing. I highly recommend her. I have only had 1 real massage in my life and this was the 2nd. This one blew my first out of the water. I mean you could just massage my feet and I'd be happy, but Mistie spent 2 hours on my poor body. She said I am pretty jacked up, a 6 1/2 on a scale of 10 with 10 being the worst. Well, that doesn't surprise me, but then again I've been through a lot lately. I think I will have to get another one. Thanks again Mistie. It was much needed and I feel soooooo much better. :)

The massage (although relaxing and immediately made me want to nap afterwards) along with the Seattle-like weather we are having today didn't keep me on the couch. I did laundry and cleaned my whole house. I also cleaned out my pantry, fridge and freezer. It was like a cleansing day all around and it just felt great. You should try it. It was like ridding my body and life of bad stuff. I recommend it. I also grilled up some organic chicken tonight (my first). I did it in between thunderstorms and I should have started 5 minutes earlier because as I was getting my chicken off the grill it was pouring, I mean pouring buckets. I had to change my clothes I was drenched. Don't worry I had my bald noggin' covered. The chicken was delish though...

Speaking of noggin' peach fuzz is starting to fall out at an exponential rate. I felt it coming because my scalp started to hurt again. It hurt to rub my head (against the grain). Even Mistie couldn't do part of her massage today on my head because it hurt too bad. :( I have patches (I look like a spotted animal) where the hair has completely fallen out. It's interesting.

The Oscars tonight were great. GO SANDRA! I loved that movie....if you haven't seen it, do so. It's amazing. I'm so happy for her.

Tomorrow it's back to work for a day and then I'll be off for over a week. I hope to get back to work on St. Patty's Day, but that's only if everything goes according to last time! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. My Bro is coming up on Tuesday to be with me while I have my treatment (Mom and Dad are having a much needed vacation in Reno). It will be nice to spend time with my brother. I haven't seen him since I was diagnosed so I'm looking forward to it.

I've spent a lot of time researching eating more organically and I'm really excited. I'm going to my first Farmer's Market on Saturday with Aimee and I can't wait! It's going to be great.

Ok, enough babbling. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Thank you for all my friends that came in and visited me at work. It was so awesome to see everyone. I meant a lot to me. Thank you thank you.

Happy Monday!

Love, Bald-E


  1. HI Erin!
    Glad to hear you are doing so well, despite all the yuckiness going on. I wanted to offer some support with your new diet if you still need it. I changed my diet a few years ago, and I am much healthier because of it (at least when I stick to it). :)
    email me if you want to know more about the organic stuff

  2. I am so glad that someone else in the family knows what a great massage therapist Mistie is! I always felt like I was just bragging as a mom!! So glad it made you feel better!
    love you lots
